Giant poppies

Those pictures are of perennial oriental poppies, not annual opium poppies. Lovely, though!

Some Osteospermums are sold as bedding plants and are a bit tender - they are from South Africa. Others are garden perennials and seem to survive all but the harshest winters. I've got one (the ordinary purple kind) that has lived with me since 1980!




A couple of IDs please.

Chrissy, you beat me to it! I agree.

Why doesn't my philadelphus smell?

Can we see a photo? Perhaps it's not Philadephus!

Yes, Hypericum androsaemum or Tutsan. It has lovely colour-changing berries later on.

Mystery Plant - can you help?

Not Black Bryony, that has shiny leaves, but might be Black Bindweed, Fallopia convolvulus. It's hard to tell how big the leaves are from the photo.

What's your worst nemesis, your most dreaded weed or plant?

Ivy and creeping buttercup. Terrified of ground elder getting in!

Yes, it looks like Tansy to me too - Tanacetum vulgare.

Sorry KT53 but I totally disagree with  your statement. Of course workers should read every sign, it could be life or death!

What have I planted here?

I'm sure someone can, but we need a photo please!
